Team Belarus at the Fed Cup | Next tie: BLR vs. USA (World Group Final in Minsk!)

Thought it might be worthwhile to create a Fed Cup thread

I'll start with some pictures of Olga, Sasha and Nika's late night arrival at the Qubec airport:

They're staying at the Hilton (not bad, but I wish they'd be staying at the Chteau Frontenac instead- it's one of the most spectacular hotels in North America).

Re: 2016 Fed Cup WGII R1: BLR vs CAN

Article from BTF website:

Fed Cup. Канада – Беларусь. Команда Беларуси прилетела в Квебек

The 12+ hour flight (Minsk-Frankfurt-Toronto-Quebec) went well. They'll have their first practice at the venue (PEPS - Laval University) today, and another one in the evening. Vera Lapko (arriving from Australia rather than Europe) will be joining them.

No mention of Vika in the article. Since Nika Shytkouskaya was not formally nominated, I hope she's there as a substitute in a 5-member team and not as a last-minute replacement for Vika.

Re: 2016 Fed Cup WGII R1: BLR vs CAN

Gutsy effort from Sasnovich to edge Abanda 6-3 in the third and give BLR a 1-0 lead, but Govortsova then flopped to Wozniak, so it's 1-1 after day 1.

Not surprising, really. Olga has played less than a handful of matches since the US Open and has lost them all (this was only her second match of 2016).

Things are looking pretty dicey for tomorrow.
